Day two of beating the heat in New Hampshire; today was not as successful. It was hotter than yesterday and there was no wind whatsoever. Knowing this, we decided to pick a route that had a high elevation trailhead, and ran mainly through woods. Mount Carrigain (4700 ft) reputedly offers the ‘best view in the White Mountains’, and while I may not agree entirely, or put the trip on my top 10 White Mountain hikes list, the summit panorama is undoubtedly the most comprehensive in the range due to its height and location. From the firetower on top, you see the entire Presendential Range, and features as distant as Franconia Ridge, Mount Moosilauke, Chocorua, pretty near every ski resort in New Hampshire, and on a clear day, the ocean and Montreal! (these last two are obvious exaggerations).
